Morkel & Roy in squad for Hampshire - Kia Oval Skip to main content

Morne Morkel & Jason Roy have both been named in the 13-man squad for the Bob Willis Trophy fixture with Hampshire at Arundel.

Morkel arrived in the UK earlier this week after travel restrictions had prevented the bowler from joining up with the squad before the start of the shortened season.

Roy is now available for selection after England’s ODI series with Ireland. Tom Curran has been made unavailable for selection by the ECB.

Laurie Evans has had his loan from Sussex extended for this game. However, Adam Finch has returned to parent club Worcestershire with a slight thigh strain.

After back-to-back appearances in the Bob Willis Trophy, James Taylor is rested for this fixture.

Rory Burns, Sam Curran and Ollie Pope are all playing in the ongoing Test with Pakistan while Ben Foakes remains in the bubble in Southampton. Hashim Amla remains in South Africa and the Club continue to work to secure a visa and travel arrangements for the batsman.

Jade Dernbach is progressing on his back-to-bowling programme. Jordan Clark (side strain), Liam Plunkett (hamstring), Reece Topley (groin) and Nicholas Kimber (knee) are sidelined for this one.

Conor McKerr has been ruled out for the rest of the 2020 season but underwent a successful operation on Thursday.

This match will take place at Arundel as the Ageas Bowl is currently hosting the second Test between England and Pakistan. Despite taking place outside their formal county borders, this is considered a home fixture for Hampshire.

There will be a live stream from Arundel, provided by Hampshire, on each day of play.

This will also be shared on & Surrey’s Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds shortly before the start of play each morning.
